- Hotfixes for Excel 2007 Too Many Cell Formats Problem
I wrote an earlier article Excel Problem Too Many Cell Formats Error about a problem that I’ve had with Excel 2007. In this problem, I can not copy and paste within a spreadsheet.

- I start Excel 2007,

When I installed my SSD drive about one year ago, I used most of the hacks I found […]

Love your computer tips. Here’s a good on I have for you.

I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Framework. On my Terry’s Computer Tips site, I’m using the base Genesis Framework with a child theme of my own to customize it.
